Glen Forsch, 52, a Burbank parent who describes himself as an active
member of the community, will be running for one of the open positions.
Forsch, director of the Sun Valley company Roscoe Hardware, said he
wants to be elected to the board in order to improve parent involvement
"Some parents are angry because they feel the district is not
communicating with them. This is why it's so important that parents know
how the system works," Forsch said.
If elected to the board, Forsch said he would stress that students
learn to read by first grade, as well as work on improving state test
scores at local schools.
Linda Smith, a Burbank resident who works in real estate, also has
announced she will seek a seat on the board.
